The combination of lentils, brown rice, and fresh vegetables contributes to the high fiber content of this dish--it's about half of the recommended 20 to 35 grams of fiber per day.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Add lentils and rice; return to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is almost absorbed. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.

Step 2

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; add oil, and place over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell peppers; sauté 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Add mushrooms and garlic; sauté 4 minutes or until tender.

Step 3

Add vegetables and remaining ingredients to lentils and rice. Let stand 15 minutes for flavors to blend.
